DEAR SIR, I AM HIGHLY GRATEFUL TO YOU FOR YOUR KIND REPLY, PL GIVE SOME CASE LAWS OR SOME RELEVANT SECTIONS IF YOU HAVE, SO WE CAN FRAME THE CORRECT OPINION AND CONTEST IF REQUIRED. THE POWER OF ATTORNEY IS GENERAL IN NATURE BUT HAVE ALL THE AUTHORITY FOR THE ASSETS i.e. HE CAN CONVERT, SELL, MORTGAGE ETC.
